Complaint Review: Houston-Autoworks
Houston-Autoworks10118 Long Point Road Houston, Texas United States of America
Houston-Autoworks Al Harrington, Sean. These are internet and Houston used car dealers ,or so they claim to be. They specialize in fraudulent tactics and the customer service changes to blocked calls and ignored What they did is promise a rust free, ready to tow 1 Ton Truck - Instead they delivered an unsafe rustbucket capable of a 1 way tow to the graveyard. Houston, Texas
His title could easily read - Internet Scam Manager. He calls himself Sean one day and Al the next
and somehow connected to Texas Elite Motors also of Houston. The long and short of it is that Al is a
scammer and a liar and if he has any talent at all it is for describing his
used vehicles in a thoroughly deceptive manner.
To back that up, he and his crew aren't at all reluctant to tell lies be they in print or over the phone. His other obvious talent is for staging photographs that are specifically designed to hide the terrible condition of what he is selling. Wherever needed, they bring out spray paint to obscure those lies and fabrications. From talking with reputable used car dealers in Houston they tell me that Al is at the center of a Johnny come lately crew of con artists who have recently blown into that market and who are also internet sales active as well, including eBay.
Customer service ends once Al has your money so be warned. Attempt to hold him accountable
for his self volunteered post sales commitments and he very quickly moves to blocking your phone numbers and of course ignoring your emails. Al describes himself as anything but a crook and a fraud but that is exactly how he conducts himself on both fronts.
A "rust free" underbody really means a thoroughly rusted underbody. "Recently serviced"
means he ships a dually to you with both outside rear wheels seized tight from rust and salt corrosion (to the point that each took air powered impact tools and lots of time to separate). "Suitable for towing your horse trailer" really means it will be... after you pay $2,000 for a complete 4 wheel brake job (due to overheated, warped d and cracked rotors). It is obvious that Al has no problems with selling un-roadworthy and unsafe vehicles to anyone.
All this to say buyer beware!
